The role of data protection officers
Final Countdown to GDPR
With GDPR taking effect across the European Union in May 2018, privacy compliance has risen up the agenda for all businesses handling personal data. Our free weekly webinars in this series will take a practical look at the changes you need to make in the final countdown. Sign up for the series, or for this particular session.
Soon, the appointment of a DPO will be mandatory in certain circumstances. It will depend on factors such as the core activity of the processor, the systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale, and the categories of data processed. We will explain the need and grounds for a DPO, and the actual requirements of the officer.
With perspectives from our data experts from CMS offices across Europe, our topics in the series are:
- Data processing: updating and establishing your agreements
- Handling data breaches
- Lawfulness of processing, consent and legitimate interests
- The ePrivacy Regulation: current state of play and what to expect
- Cybersecurity and GDPR: where are we heading?
